My set has an image that is like a zoomed picture. I do have a digital/HD box set so my television contrls for those function are disabled. Is there a focus for these sets to realign the projector? Thanks in advance.

Re: Picture to Large for Screen

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

Picture on screen is too big head of people are cut off it does not show complete picture

Use your cable or satellite tv remote to adjust the aspect ratio. If you have cable there is a button on the remote called hd zoom and it has this symbol: #. On the satellite tv remotes it usually says format or aspect. You might even have to go into the cable box/satellite tv receiver menus to adjust the aspect ratio/picture format. Once you have done so you can fine tune the picture even further with the television remote's wide/format/aspect/zoom button. Also check and make sure your television is on the right input and that your cable box/satellite tv receiver is set at the right resolution for the television 1080p/1080i/720p.

How do i adjust the picture on a GE D52GW12 52 in. Rear Projection TV? The picture is too large.

There should be a zoom button on the remote control. Each time you press it the size of the picture changes. If there is not a button on the remote, there should be a on screen menu display that allows the size to be adjusted. If you are using a HD cable box or HD satellite receiver, they also have picture zoom options.
I hope this helps

I don't have the remote, the picture in the TV does not cover the entire screen, it shows about 4to6 inches of emptyness at each side, what can I do to make the picture cover the hole screen?

To adjust the picture size on the television itself you would need a Sharp remote because there is a view mode button on it but there may be another way. If you are connecting a cable box or satellite tv receiver box to this television that remote should have an hd zoom # button or format button or aspect button that would adjust the picture size. The tv would have to be in the right input and the cable box or satellite tv receiver box would have to be set to the proper resolution according to what this tv is supposed to be able to display.

The picture is wider then the screen on my rear projection tv

Are you using a cable box? Do you have aspect settings on your remote? Comcast cable boxes have a hd zoom button. This will push the sides of the picture out

Image too big for screen

I have the same tv.
On your remote push menu, then go to settings, and then screen. Put the auto wide to on. And keep the picture mode on normal, not the zoom or wide zoom. If its in HD it will fit the screen. If its not in HD it will crop the sides. This worked for me, hope it works out.

Your TV set may have settings for picture size ratios but also if you have cable or sattelite service, they too may have these settings. Try both TV and cable remocons for proper adjustment

Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there will be a menu somewhere regarding aspect ratio using the terms - cropped, zoom, and a few other terms as well. You probably want cropped, which will cut some of the sides off, but you wouldn't miss the picture as a whole when view at full screen. Hope this helps!

Picture too large for screen

If the television is connected to a cable box such as Time Warner's HD box, the picture mode can be changed by pressing the '#' on the cable box's remote keypad (where the channel numbers are). This cycles the picture between zoom, normal, and stretch which could be cause of your problem.
